: that was senator barrasso from yesterday. sebelius is on the hot seat this week testifying on what has been an unmitigated disaster. jonah goldberg, leads our coverage, editor-at-large, "national review." good morning you to. you've been studying this over the weekend. another crash overnight. what happened this time? >> this is one of the contractors, the data services hub which provides information to the insurers and to other government agencies, it went dark and sent everything into a sail spin. they say they will try to fix it as quickly as possible. bill: republicans are talking all weekend. they believe this is the just the tip of the iceberg. if that is the case, what's beneath the water? what's next? >> sure. first of all there is the i.t. problem here is enormous. they sent the mars rover to mars with 500,000 lines of code. this website has 500 million, which is 1,000 times more. it's a huge mess. most i.t. experts on the record, all of them off the record saying there is no way they will get this done by november. moreover, a lot of criticisms republicans have made, conservatives
it since it went on-line on october 1st. meantime, hhs secretary kathleen sebelius is expected to be in the hotseat answering more questions in front of the finance committee. steve centanni has more on that. steve, tell us more. >> hi, jaime. even presidential candidate, doppler candidate mitt romney, signed -- from massachusetts is weighing in on the battle from obamacare and he zeroed in on president obama's campaign promise. listen. >> he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. whether you like the model of obamacare or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermind the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. the only way he can rebuild credibility is to work with republicans and democrats and try and rebuild a foundation. >> that troubled health care .gov website is back up and running after an over night shutdown for repairs that had a rocky rollout. meantime congress still wants answers about the flawed website and about how many people have been able to successfully enroll in oba
kathleen sebelius' department, and issa today demanded to know then why a parade of top officials from jay carney to sebelius and one of her top deputies have refused to turn over the real enrollment figures. >> marilyn told us she doesn't have numbers. i'm sorry, but if you spend $600 million on your signature legislation and you have internal numbers and you're not willing to give external numbers, what you're doing is the kind of propaganda that this administration has done since day one. >> presidents aides have pledged to start revealing numbers at the end of october. they say it will take a couple weeks to nail down the details. >> why don't you at least put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. show thepublic where we are. >> we are going to give you a reasonable, accurate number, as we promised we would, on a monthly basis, consistent with the data released that you see for other programs. and the focus here -- you know, for understandable reasons, i guess, is on, you know, how low the number might be. >> carney said while republicans want to focus on t
's no reason they shouldn't be able to do it. they have minimized the damage. kathleen sebelius said i wish i had five years. that's ridiculous. you don't need five years to do this. the other problem is that the president made a lot of promises that aren't holding up which is you're not going to have to change your health care. >> are you okay? >> i'm going to have to change my health care and it's going to go up by quite a bit of money. which i've said before, i'm happy to pay if 30 million people are going to get insured because of it, but i'm in a position to pay it, a. 50i78 not living paycheck to paycheck like most americans are. i'm not supporting a family. so i can do that. but more importantly, it's not what the president said was going to happen. so i don't think that's that's okay as a policy matter that's not okay. >> i think repters are frustrated about having been misled and i think they're also ticked off about not being able to get answers to basic questions, how many people have you covered so far and -- >> sure, stonewalling is never a good idea. the other problem is, the st
services secretary kathleen sebelius will testify about the problems with the website. renee elmers of north carolina is one of the committee members who will committee is sebelius. >> why did she repeatedly tell us by that october 1st, that website would be ready to go, that every american would be able to come on? i also want to understand, who did what when. who was calling the shots? i'd also like to know from kathleen sebelius, how am i going to respond? i'm getting thousands of requests from reaching out to my office, telling me that their health care premiums are going up and their health care plan they have is being canceled. >> nbc's white house correspondent peter alexander joins us. based on what that one member of congress wants to ask, you have a laundry list. it's going to be a hot one on k will be speaking and president obama simultaneously to massachusetts, they implemented something to obama care in 2007-2008. white house advisers say we're okay here. we expect most signups to happen in later months. if you take the example of massachusetts, only 123 people signed u
story i said demanded to know why a parade of tp officials including kathleen sebelius did not give the information. >> if you have internal numbers and you're not willing to hear extra numbers, you are doing the kind of propaganda that this administration has done since day one. reporter: they say it will take a couple of weeks to nail down the details. >> why don't you put out a reasonable preliminary number and show us some transparency. >> we have a reasonable and accurate number as we promised we would on a monthly basis, consistent with the data release that you see other programs. the focus here is understandable on how low the number might be. reporter: jay carney said the republicans want to focus on the bad news and that democrats knew that would be slow at first but would pick up over time. the pressure to be transparent as coming from long time supporters of the affordable care act blasted the broader rollout with cnbc. >> and is off the rails and i think what the country needs right now is honesty and transparency and truth about what is really going on. reporter: oddly
services secretary kathleen sebelius just days away from her testimony before congress. wende wendell live at the white house. >> reporter: there are going to be tough questions for secretary sebelius when she testifies before a house committee on wednesday. sunday's shutdown came just a few days after she assured reporters that the online experience was getting better. hhs officials say a verizon data hub went down. it's supposed to be back up now, but white house officials admit the system is still not operating as it should. a couple of democratic senators say the website's problems are reason enough to delay the requirement that people who can afford health insurance buy it next year. new hampshire senator gene shaheen wants a couple months' delay. joe manchin wants the delay for all of next year. meanwhile, kaiser health says hundreds of thousands of people have been sent cancellation notices by their insurance companies which is ammunition for the critics who challenged the president's promise if you like your insurance, you can keep it. blue cross officials say their subscribers are
their lives at increased risk. and hhs secretary, kathleen sebelius, is refusing to answer questions including specifically the number of people who have enrolled in new hampshire's health care exchange so far. joining me from her home state of new hampshire, senator kelly ayotte. thank you so much, senator, for joining us. >> good morning, candy. thank you. >> good morning. there is a -- a movement by senator lindsey graham to black all of the president's nominees until survivors of the benghazi attack are allowed to come and testify to various committees. are you on board with that tactic? >> well, candy, we've written several times, not only secretary kerry, but the president asking the survivors be made available to congress to get to the bottom of this. i understand we've been brushed off many times. i think that senator graham is going to be speaking to the administration about this, trying to cooperatively address this issue. it's not acceptable that they've not been made available. to say that there's an ongoing investigation in terrorism, that would preclude oversight by the congress
, they want people to have health care. they want to be able to show that this works. >> kathleen sebelius has been in the middle of this, carl, and is going before that committee on wednesday. what does she have to say? what can she do? >> i'm not in the -- giving cabinet secretaries advice. what has to be done is a show of recovered competence, and this has not been a very competent rollout. the president of the united states ought to be saying, look, we have screwed up in terms of how we have rolled this thing out. we're going to learn from it. but let's not be defeated, and let's not be put over on the side and marginalized by the fact that the opposition party has no interest in seeing this succeed. that's what people need to know. that's what bill clinton is talking about. the opposition party wants this buried, not for reasons of americans being healthy but for ideological reasons. once again the country is being ill served just like the government shutdown over ideology over the national interests which is what keeps happening with the republicans on capitol hill. make this thing work.
this afternoon when three house republicans slammed health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius for blaming problems with the rollout on the government shutdown. but the latest issue with the website wasn't political at all. it was another big technical problem over the weekend that only got fixed today. is it working or not? 27 days after it was supposed to be open for business, the healthcare.gov website crashed again over the weekend. it was up and running again on monday. the administration blames this latest problem on one of the 56 contractors for the project, a subsidiary of verizon called terremark which was responsible for website capacity issues. >> the healthcare.gov technical team continued troubleshooting the issue with the online creation account process. >> reporter: meanwhile, the administration had other pressing problems. a triple threat on capitol hill. republican chairman darrell issa and his house reform and oversight committee wanted a slew of documents related to obama care and the rollout by 5:00 p.m. today. that deadline came and went, but issa has more

to the contractors last week and we have kathleen sebelius in the hot seat this week. what are the first questions that you want to ask of the secretary? >> well, what i'd like to know from the secretary is, number one, why did she repeatedly over time tell us that by october 1st, that website was going to be ready to go, that every american would be able to come on. i also want to understand who did what when. who was calling the shots? why was this process interrupted? you know, things like the shop and browse portion were turned off. there are so many questions. but now i'd also like to know from kathleen sebelius how am i going to respond. i am getting thousands of requests from -- reaching out to my office telling me that their health care premiums are going up and that their health care plan that they have is being cancelled. how do i respond to that. those are the questions i'd like to know. >> have you asked anyone in north carolina why the state didn't start its own exchange, knowing that there was going to be a 3.5% increase on all those people in your home state of north carolina that w
,000, 21,000 are in medicaid. 5,000 are in qualified health plans. >> reporter: secretary kathleen sebelius who will be on the hot seat over all of this at a congressional hearing wednesday was already the butt of the opening segment of "saturday night live". >> not working and breaking and sucking. well, tonight, i have a number of friendly tips to help you deal with those technical problems. for example, have you tried restarting your computer? >> reporter: the real secretary sebelius will be testifying on capitol hill wednesday. and the president is planning what might be a little bit of a distraction. he's going to boston that same day where he's going to compare this rollout to the rollout of mitt romney's health care plan in massachusetts. bret. >> ed henry on the north lawn. thank you. while millions are still unable to learn the nuts and bolts of the health care exchanges from the government's troubled website, some people up to no good may actually be learning more about you. correspondent peter ducy tells us how that works. >> reporter: the system is down at the moment. that's wha
services secretary kathleen sebelius is set to testify before congress the day after tomorrow. ed henry is our main man at the white house and is live now. any response from the white house today? >> reporter: it's interesting. jay carney walked out and near the top of this daily briefing say all this has been fixed, verizon had it up and running by 7:00 a.m. this morning. but while the briefing was going on, i was checking social media, and various people were insisting that jay carney was wrong, that in fact they were trying to log on, to some of the exchanges and could not get on and were getting the error message you just showed, system not working. so i asked jay carney, what was true and what was not. take a listen. >> how can you say at 7:00 a.m. this morning it was back up and running? how can people be confident -- >> obviously i'm not online right now, ed, or people who are e-mailing you, but what verizon at the aremark announced they successfully resolved the issue with the network component overnight, and taz of 7:00 a.m., the data services hub was fully operational. i'm sur
understands insurance and how these policies come about, and i thought sebelius was very good today saying look, if these personal poll soys are renewed on an annual basis. >> great to have you. that's "the ed show." politics nation with reverend al sharpton starts now. >>> good evening. and thank you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the president hits back on health care. today president obama went toe to toe against all those right wing critics who have been slamming the affordable care act. just a short time ago in boston, the president addressed to those critics head on and told them to explain themselves. >> it's no surprise that some of the same folks trying to scare people now are the same folks who've been trying to sink the affordable care act from the beginning. and i've said before, folks had actually good ideas, better ideas than what's happening in massachusetts or what we've proposed, for providing people with health insurance i'd be happy to listen. but that's not what's happening. and anyone defending the remnants of the old broken system as if it was working for people -- an
.gov and the president's still trying to solve a plan yesterday in boston while hours earlier kathleen sebelius took full responsibleity. >> so let me say directly to these americans. you deserve better. i apologize. hold me accountable for the debacle. i'm responsible. >> okay. >> so there's no excuse for it, and i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. we are working overtime to improve it every day. >> i want to bring in our company, josh barrel, for business insider and erin carmone, national reporter and congressman charles rangel, the democrat from new york. good to see all of you. good morning. a couple of things stood out for me and one is the number that we just showed and that people are sick of their own representative and usually people are sick of congress and they still like their person and the president who always had personal likability, josh, is under water. if you're anybody in washington right now, what do you make of these numbers? i wouldn't be surprised if we were in washington and especially the last month, and i think this is sort of like the situation in 20
did he know? we'll ask that question of secretary sebelius tomorrow in the energy and commerce committee. these are issues of trust that the democrats are going to have to respond to when we go into this election cycle a year from now. >> do you have to campaign? does your republican candidates have to campaign beyond -- do you have to not look like you're rooting for failure? do you have to campaign on a solution that -- i mean, one thing the house republicans haven't had is their own health care plan to run on. >> right. >> i know paul ryan was coming up with one. is that the idea that you'll rally around what paul ryan is writing for january? >> well, first of all, two things. one, you do have to talk about how you're going to solve problems, which is what we did in the energy and commerce committee last week, figuring hout how do you waste $600 million, what they wasted on solyndra, and have a website that doesn't work? we'll get to the bottom of that. whether you like obama care or not, i don't want us to waste $600 million on a site -- >> do you want it to work? do you wa
. recent "saturday night live" skit mocking health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was spot on. >> millions of americans are visiting healthcare.gov, which is great news. unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time. [ laughter ] >> in total, 248 people enrolled in obama care nationwide by the end of day two according to an internal obama administration memo obtained by that oversight committee. adding to the list of white house whos is the fact that the vast majority of those signing up on state exchanges are signing up for medicaid while a much smaller number are signing up for private insurance, the administration says it will release official enrollment numbers in mid november, but, if the numbers are as bad as these reports suggest, what will the president do? joining me now to react from washington, d.c., democrat strategist julian epstein. julian, six? you couldn't make this up. if i had said six, they would call me crazy, racist, who know what is they would call me. six. >> i'm the first to acknowledge that there have been a lot of problems
. mr. president, the president should ask the secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius to resign her position because of the disastrous rollout of obamacare. taxpayers have spent $400 million to create exchanges, but after three and one half years still don't work. as a result, the white house had to announce last night that the key enforcement mechanism to their individual mandate, a $95 fine that increases every year, will be waived until the end of march of next year. that's fine for those currently without insurance. but for the millions being forced into the exchanges and losing their current insurance, there's no relief. just higher prices. a likely lapse in insurance coverage. a broken web site. and broken promises. we already know of 1.5 million americans are losing their policies because starting january 1, many insurance policies that they now have will not be legal under obamacare and because the exchange will not be working, they won't be able to choose another policy. this chart gives an example of what's going on. just in three states: california, florida
about kathleen sebelius. it was so refreshing to hear someone say i am accountable. >> i agree. you're right. it was refreshing. if you look into it she also did not know anything. she said i was as surprised as anyone else. either that is not true or there is something fundamentally wrong that the head of the department is caught by surprise by this. >> inside the white house there is a health care policy person. someone had to be tracking this kind of thing. this is his signal achievement. will the rollout be ready? and for that person to not say we are on track or off track or call the secretary of hhs. >> surely somebody knew. >> something is wrong. terribly wrong. >> they knew but no one has been more singularly responsible. they were a lot of people who were part of building up but no one was at the top. now we have someone at the top and what is more likely to help the administration get this thing together is they are bringing in real pros. they have a loaner from google and a loaner from oracle. these people know what they are doing, they should have been there in the first
you care whether or not it works? today, secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius testified before a republican house committee on problems with the rollout of the health care law. one republican congressman told her she was not in kansas anymore. another told her, he thought he saw her riding her bike in kansas when she was a child. it was a weird hearing. at one point, the secretary just said whatever. in the middle of an answer at a particularly badgering nonsense moment with a republican member of congress. the republican plan on health care was to pretend like it was not the law. then it was to shut down the government to demand that it not be the law. now the plan is maybe sort of trying to make it better. at least demanding that it be better and demanding answers for why it is not better already. when the problems with obama care start to be resolved as they were in massachusetts when that state's law rolled into effect over a period of months and years, when the problems with this nationally start to settle out and it starts to work, then what should we exp
the numbers. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was asked by congress about this she wouldn't give it. we know the number was beyond embarrassing. six people on day one. had a total of 248 by the next day. this has really stunned a lot of people. especially democrats, who voted for this. they basically summoned top white house officials including white house chief of staff to capital hill yesterday to explain this. you know they wanted to find out the numbers themselves. one of the senators, jeff merkel, he said we were all confident the system would be up and running by october 1st. they to the a really big surprise. we find out just how bad it really is. >> it is. they need 39,000 people a day. 39,000 people a day to reach the goal in march of seven million people they need to have signed up by then, is that right? >> that's right. the whole plan of obamacare they have to have enough people to sign up, especially enough younger and healthier people as opposed to older, less healthy people to sign up to make sure premiums just do not go through the roof. the figure they nee
on the implementation of the affordable care act and the healthcare.gov website. halfling sebelius testified -- kathleen sebelius does divide on wednesday and apologized for the flaws of the website as it was launched october 1. >> thank you. members of the committee, i left my position as governor of kansas for the opportunity to continue the work i've been doing for most of my over 35 years of public service to expand opportunities for all americans, gardens of geography or gender or income to have affordable health coverage. during my years as a state is a governor, a two-term i have worked on that effort that i care deeply about. there are still millions of americans who are uninsured as well as underinsured. forle have some coverage some illness, but had no real protection from financial ruin and no confidence he will take care of themselves and their families if they have an accident or an illness. and for them a new day has finally come. in these early weeks, access to healthcare.gov has been miserably frustrating experience for way too many americans. including many who have waiting sometimes th
picture of a keg. >> that was republican congressman grilling kathleen sebelius this week. he was referring to an ad campaign. this features a college student doing a keg stand captioned don't tap into that beer money to cover your medical bills. joining me is adam fox, director of the strategic management for the colorado consumer health initiative. adam, it's good to have you here. what was your reaction when that happened on capitol hill? when the congressman was trying to get kathleen sebelius to either give her approval or disapproval of this style of ad? >> well, you know, i don't think -- it really doesn't have anything to do with the secretary, because it wasn't coming from colorado's state-based marketplace much less the federal marketplace. so she really had no idea that this was going to be happening. this was really something that we were doing to try to raise awareness among young adults. >> all right. so connect for health colorado says 3,164 people enrolled as of october 29th. explain to us the campaign and the minds behind this. obviously you look like a young
sketch and parody of health secretary kathleen sebelius. she said the website was only designed to handle six users at a time and it got a laugh on saturday night. then figures came out released by republicans yesterday showing only six americans actually did sign up during the website's entire first day of operations. the obama administration fought back today. they said those figures are not official. they say the pace of enrollment will pick up and new numbers will be released later this month. >>> a story from medicine making news tonight. the march of dimes says premature births in the u.s. have fallen to a 15-year low, mostly because of better health, better health care. but sadly the u.s. still ranks worst among the nations in the developing world. >>> and a man who has always dispensed medical care his way has retired. there may never be anyone like dr. russell donor of rushville, illinois. we profiled him last year in our "making a difference" segment. he was called the $5 doctor locally. because that's all he ever charged for an office visit. he is ending his practice and his cl
